First thing to do is to have the codes pulled. Some chain autoparts stores will even do this for free.
An OBDII handheld code reader will soon become the first tool in anyone's toolbox. Might not be a bad investment.
When you attempt to accelerate from a stop does the engine race and then kick into gear? If so check the transmission fluid level. Might also consider having it and the filter changed.
If the engine does nothing when the gas pedal is depressed consider replacing the fuel filter and testing the TPS (throttle position sensor).
Good luck and let us know. :)
